CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -Charlotte Bobcats owner Bob Johnson believes first-year coach Sam Vincent is the right man for the job.
But Johnson said Tuesday the final decision on whether Vincent will return next season rests with part-owner and basketball operations chief Michael Jordan.
The Bobcats are 28-46 and are all but certain to miss the playoffs in Vincent's first season as an NBA head coach.
Johnson said he believes Vincent has overcome early growing pains to do a ``credible job.''
But Jordan has the final say on all basketball decisions, and Johnson said the former Chicago Bulls great will decide Vincent's future. Jordan rarely grants interviews, and a team spokesman said he was not immediately available for comment.
